Happy Days

Hello there, today I have a card to share with you using the new Scene It Around and All Four Seasons Hippos sets from Clearly Besotted. I shared this card in my release preview, so I apologise if you are seeing it twice but I did not use it as part of the countdown, so wanted to share it today.

I started off my card by stamping two of the hippos from the Clearly Besotted All Four Seasons Hippos Stamp Set on to white cardstock with Memento Tuxedo Black Ink. I made masks for them from mask paper, cut them out and placed them on top of the images. I then stamped the summer image from the Clearly Besotted Scene It Around Stamp Set on top and then removed the masks.
The scene was coloured using Copic Markers (the colours that I used are listed below the supplies area for reference) and then die cut the image out using a Hero Arts Nesting Circle Infinity Die. I took a white A2 card base and embossed the next largest of the circle dies on to the front, using my die cutting machine. The image piece was then added on top with foam tape.
I took the sentiment from the Clearly Besotted Anteater Antics Stamp Set and stamped it on to black cardstock with Versamark Ink. I applied white embossing powder and heat set. It was cut in to a strip and added to the card with more foam tape. To finish off, I added black glaze pen to the hippos eyes and white gel pen highlights to the image.

  1. This is so cute. It's almost like looking through a porthole and seeing the little scene from a ship! So so cute, beautiful colouring too! The embossed circle is something I always forget to use but I love the detail it adds xx
